OnePlus Tab on the way! [UPDATE: OnePlus statement]

July 2, 2014

The OnePlus One proved to be one of the best smartphones of the year, while undercutting all competition with an insanely attractive $300-$350 price point. It is truly a marvel of modern technology, but it is a bit lonely so far. OnePlus changed the smartphone market, and now it seems they are ready to take on the tablet market.

A new leak from renown @evleaks shows a screenshot of a OnePlus test website. It looks very standard, but there is one category that may go unnoticed if you don’t take a close look. A new OnePlus Tab link has been included, signaling what could be an upcoming tablet coming from the now-popular manufacturer.

We wish we could have seen more, but that is the only information we are getting for now. There’s no word on specs or features just yet. If this tablet is real, we can expect it to surpass our expectations, just as the OnePlus One did.

Do keep in mind these are nothing but leaks and rumors. There is a high probability this rumors is true. After all, @evleaks has a great reputation for bringing the hottest leaks, which often prove to be real. He is not always 100% right, though, so let’s stay tuned and keep our eyes open for more details.

Update: OnePlus statement

OnePlus has gotten in touch with us with an official statement. It seems OnePlus is not getting ready to release a tablet. If they are, they aren’t ready to disclose anything just yet.

“OnePlus has no plans to make a tablet – we’re currently solely focused on the OnePlus One.” -Bridget Hickey

Update 2: @evleaks was hoaxed

Move along, guys… nothing to see here. It turns out @evleaks has been hoaxed by a 14-year-old who claimed to be a Google engineer. It seems there will be no OnePlus Tab, after all! This is just another reason why we tell you to not hold your breath on rumors. Props to @evleaks for accepting this, though.

    Oh! That’s interesting. Gimme please.

    • WantNewNexus

      Got invite?

      • Jayfeather787

        no

        • Brett

          Then you’ll never touch one.

          • Jayfeather787

            oh :(

  • Luka Mlinar

    I doubt they are planing any tablets right now. Especially with all the problems they are hawing with their invitation system that seems to be failing over and over again. With yesterdays announcement of yet another delay, their house is figuratively on fire.
    EDIT: Also you can’t really expect a tablet from OnePlus until OPPO makes one first since OnePlus seems to be piggybacking on OPPO’s existing production line.

    • Jayfeather787

      Awwwww… But I wants a OnePlus tablet!!
      You think there is an Oppo tablet coming?

      • Luka Mlinar

        From what i herd in their announcements and other message from the staff on the forum; there are no plans to do anything other than the OnePlus. No plans at all. So I’m gonna go ahead and call bull**** on this. @evleaks is on his was to being the least reliable person in the Android world.

    • Aa

      OnePlus is Oppo.

    Guys, please. “Now-popular” manufacturer? No one outside tech community knows them. Barely anyone actualy HAS the phone.

    • Duane Swift

      THANK YOU.

      Good Lord this is something I’ve been trying to explain to people. Outside the tech community the OPO is UNKNOWN. Their strategy only targetted those who know about CM, or are actively involved in tech. It’s amazingly easy to lose interest in this phone, so even easier for someone who doesn’t care about the tech that makes it a “flagship killer”.

      • http://petercast.net Peterson Silva

        Sometimes tech journalists take the bubble they live in for the world outside. It happens…

      • Brian Dong Min Kim

        Even if OPPO decided to aim for the consumer market, where would they get the funds for advertisement? You can’t beat what Samsung’s doing all over public transportation, YouTube, Google, even on this website.

    • s2weden2000

      Nobody outside the tech community knows about Xiaomi either..look what/how they are doing…

      • http://petercast.net Peterson Silva

        I hear they’re popular in China, but then I can’t tell; I’ve never been there.

        • s2weden2000

          They are also popular in other places than china…

          • Brian Dong Min Kim

            3rd largest smartphone vendor in China. Thinking of the demand there, they must sell a good amount of devices.

  • Ahmed Marzook

    First release your phone before you go anywhere else I relly want one

  • Brandon Miranda

    We expect it to surpass our expectations. Is that possible?

  • diquise

    Releasing another product before the current one is even available to consumers…. Good one…

  • Jonathan TAM

    Small print: only available with invitation.

  • Jerry Rich

    Are you kidding me? This company is the biggest JOKE of the year. If they figure out how to sell people their phone, I wonder how their tech support will be?

  • Jerry Rich

    “The OnePlus One proved to be one of the best smartphones of the year.” Only in your dreams!

  • Richard Gao

    WANT

  • Chad Mullavey

    One plus hasn’t “changed” the mobile industry until they cab actually ship a damn product. I could blow smoke out my bum and say I could manufacture a phone with an 801, 5gb ram and a 128gb internal storage for $100 but fail to deliver too. One plus is just another fan boy company that markets more than it delivers.

  • Sunny

    Don’t give them anymore free marketing/publicity!

    Try this if u really keen to have 1+1 at a higher price. But i really not sure this source are secured, as i not try before.

  • Ruz

    Whats the use? I still cant buy 1+1

  • AvalancheRyder

    Nice, let me grab my iPad and preferred weapon of destruction…

    • s2weden2000

      Aijpad sucks..

  • Brett

    It’s only the next logical step. An imaginary tablet to go with the imaginary phone.

  • Sorin Otsel

    the invite system is going to fuck them

  • Blacknight

    At this rate, I don’t think this company is going to be able to survive… All of the members of its forum are getting against the company. Obviously, you cannot sell a product if you don’t have it. OPO is not Tesla and of course, they’re not selling cars but phones.

    I am not pretty sure they can survive to even its first phone unless they start changing their mind… So much less trying to sell a new tablet. I’m sure if they do it, all of their possible-awaiting customers are going to be really pissed off…

  • Alain Lafond

    Yeah, yeah, yeah… Tell me about it. A tablet?
    What about a phone?
    This is getting ridicule…

  • Sau64

    but you can’t have it

  • Will Maitner

    Don’t make me laugh. Another device we need the help of Rumplestiltskin just to get our hands on. This whole invite only thing is total bull, just a way to control the flow of devices. Too stupid. I was interested in the OnePlusOne, but not with these kinds of hurdles in the way.

  • TennesseeV

    @evleaks said this morning that this was a hoax.

  • A Skylit [S]unjΔy

    Evleaks has really been losing their credibility lately.

  • Hector R

    How can there be a One Plus tablet when the One Plus phone is not even a reality but a promise?

  • Jonathan Joshua

    how can they release a tablet when i can’t even get my hands on a phone

  • Aa

    Seriously who cares. OnePlus themselves have zero credibility .

  • jesper andersen

    Wow… yet another device you can´t buy. What a gamechanger OnePlus are… not!

  • Yaritza Miranda

    Led Lampen will arrive before
